    Online Writing Class

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Manav, Nov 3, 2010.

    Finally, I have registered for an online fiction writing class. I have chosen Gotham Writer's Workshop because it is the closest to a real class I could find. Anyway, any tips on how to utilize the class to my full advantage. Anything else you want to say about/warn me about the particular class or online classes in general.

    I recently took Gotham's Fiction I course and enjoyed it a great deal. I think the key to getting the most out of it is to participate as much as you can. You'll be asked to critique other students' work, much as we do on this forum, and you should do so honestly and in great detail. Read the critiques others give on your work and ask questions of those other students on points you want clarified. Participate in the chat sessions.

    The more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it.

    So good to hear the class is enjoyable and useful, I have been planning to join this class for many months now and I wasn't sure if it's any good.

    I certainly found it valuable, and I'm going to take the Fiction II class as well, when I get time. Probably in January.
